When your students' reading pillows go missing, they will be eager to solve the case. They will be transformed into detectives as they conduct science experiments and read mystery books to solve the crime.
This integrated unit contains everything you need to transform your classroom into a crime scene and push your students to apply their knowledge of science and reading to solve the mystery.
When your reading pillows go missing, your little detectives will observe the crime scene, test chemicals the culprit left behind, and analyze fingerprints and handwriting samples. They will brainstorm interview questions and interrogate their suspects.
